Treatment is over...


Monday, March 11, 2013

Today was the last day of 3 days of IVIG in the hospital. The worst day for me. It's so very strange how I get so excited for the final day jsut for the worst experience of all. Why even bother with the excitement? Excuse me if this is not an inspiring happy go lucky blog. You see i have hair on my arms. I wear the same iv for 3 days and wear it home for 2 nights. They tell me they sue paper tape. I accuse them of being Sadists and using Duct Tape on me. I hear them smile in their voice. Little Debbie can't see the difference in the two types of tape. Well this time the male nurse wrapped this Duct tape round and round my arm securing the iv in place. Robert walked in the room to take me home and i am all teary eyed and he asked What's wrong?" Geez... I began swearing at the nurse to have her do it faster and easier but no she pulls and pulls and pulls. I start jumping and grabbing for anything to get hold of.... "Gee Debbie. Who ever thought you knew words like that? You're such a sweet lady"... blah blah blah

Then a fire alarm went off and when she went out she said stay here till we give you other directions. So here we were held up on my release out of the hospital because of a fire and i was on the 2nd floor. This was not a smiling da for me but i did not panick. However I was a tad bit nervous. Because the staff looked like zombies at every door, stairway and entrance I felt it was a staged fire drill. We did not see flames or smoke but saw many fire trucks.

And how was your day?

    Nearly all of the tapes pull like the devil because no one wants to have an IV restarted or infiltrated, nurse or patient. Bummer! The good news is this is the last one so you made it!

    So sorry you have to go through all of this Debbie.
Can you remove some of the hair on your arm where the iv will go prior to the testing for less pain?
Glad there was not a fire after all.
Hugs,
Angela

    DEBS, I am so sorry those people were so unkind. There seem to be few compassionate people in healthcare any more. I am beginning to think we are like cars Drive in Drive out wash and dry, NEXT ONE PLEASE. I hope you will tell someone there your feelings before the next time. If no -one tells them they are not treating patients well they will not know. Every time we go to the hospital we get a survey where we can rate them or write about a good or bad issue. I am so sorry you were treated badly. HUGS Pat in Maine. HUGS and much love Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon for reading my Blog today.
